Texas and Nor Cal Golf Course advice
« on: January 28, 2019, 04:05:43 AM »
Ok you yanks..

Any one can recommend which of the following courses to play?   These are based on reciprocals/affiliation through my club.

I'll have 3 rounds in Texas and options are :

1. Ridgeview Ranch
2.  River Chase Golf Club
3.  Thorntree Golf Club
4.  Old American Golf Club
5.  Bear Creek Golf
6. Cowboys Golf Club
7. Iron Horse Golf Club
8. Lake Park Golf Club
9.  Mansfield National
10.  Plantation Golf club
11. The Golf Club at Fossil Creek
12.  The Golf Club at Twin Creeks

For San Francisco, I'll have 2 rounds.Options are :

1. Ruby Hill Golf Club
2.  Monarch Bay
3.  Summitpointe

I may have an in to Spy Glass (via a member here) so that'll take first priority of course.

Not fussed if its a resort or links style course just that its is good condition.

Please recommend in order of preference.

Thanks.

For Nor Cal:

1. Ruby Hill is a private. Played it once. Good track.

Skip both Monarch Bay and Summitpointe. While in Livermore (where Ruby Hill is), play Wente Vineyards ( Greg Norman course) and Poppy Ridge (Nor Cal Golf Association member course).  Callippe Preserve is another decent track in that area if you can squeeze in a 4th.

Pasatiempo (Alister Mackenzie) is a must play if you’ve never experienced it.

When are you going? PM me if you want to play together. I can take you as a guest at Poppy Ridge.

I am from the Dallas area.  The top 3 course from your list would be: 1. Cowboys 2. Old American 3. Fossil Creek. 

Cowboys is always top of the list for public courses in DFW area.  LPGA plays at Old American for one of their stops here in DFW.  Fossil Creek is an Arnold Palmer designed course. 

Thank you

You’re dead on, H, except  Poppy Ridge is now $86 and Hills is $110-$120 on weekends for members!
Mentioned those to A via PM also.
Land of milk and honey?
Sometimes land of MILF and money! Or is that Florida?

Dallas Cowboys would be a must play course.  It's the most expensive public course in the DFW area but it will be worth it.  If you buy the all in inclusive deal, you can eat before and after the round.  All you can eat and drink on the course except for alcohol.  The course is always in top condition.
